Ileana D'Cruz refused to work in "Wanted (2009)", the Hindi version of Telugu hit "Pokiri" and thus lost the opportunity to romance Salman Khan on the big screen. Now she hopes to get another chance to team up with the Bollywood star.
"Yes, I was approached for the remake of 'Pokiri' in Tamil and Hindi. I did 'Pokiri' in Telugu, which did a huge business. I didn't take the offer of 'Pokiri' in Hindi, which was titled 'Wanted', as I felt I was not prepared enough to enter Bollywood," the actress, who is now debuting in Bollywood with "Barfi!" told IANS.
